General Project Judging registration is now available!

General Project Judging consists of a one-on-one interview with a project judge.  Members will have 15 minutes to share their 4-H project with a judge, answer a few questions and receive feedback regarding his/her project.  Those who participate in General Project judging have an opportunity to receive awards for placing 1st – 5th and be selected to represent Clermont County at the Ohio State Fair.

There are two different links to register; one link is for projects being judged on Wednesday, July 7th and the other link is for projects being judged on Thursday, July 8th . You will need to fill out the survey separately for each project you are bringing to pre-fair project judging.  Do not select the same time for more than one project and be sure to give yourself 15 minutes between interviews.  If you are planning to have your project judged virtually, you will use the same registration links. Please use an email on the registration that you check frequently. Zoom links for your judging interview will be sent 24 hours in advance.
